I recently found part of my old postcard collection that was displayed on my cork-board in my old apartment. It was fun going through all of them refreshing my memory of who sent them. Some of them were really old and had my home address from growing up in Colorado. I had forgotten how many people I had wrangled into sending me postcards throughout the years – friends from high school, friends from elementary school, friends from my time in England, my brother’s ex-wife (they were married when she sent them), and my parents. Now the question becomes do I put them in my wall display or safely in a box.
I am still looking for postcards from a friend in elementary school when she lived in Germany, and postcards from a friend who stayed in France for a year. I have not given up hope!
